When surrounded by travel wonders such as the Sydney Opera House, it seems a little strange that we’d be writing a whole piece about walls. Yet this is the age that we live in, one where Instagram is the inspiration for our travel and even dictates where we go. Thus the reason we’re writing about walls and not The 7 Wonders of the World.

So whether your Insta game is strong already, or you’re looking for some inspiration, we’ve mapped out these Insta famous walls and will tell you exactly where to find them.
